    The Chaka-flan is a chocolate cake flan hybrid. It's GREAT!

    Went once. That's enough. Not really a coffee shop. Good if you're there to hang out only.

    Free WiFi. Decent place to get work done. Delicious cakes, large portions- perfect for the inner fat kid in all of us. Friendly staff. Oh, and there's pet fish in the back.

    Lots of cakes to choose from! I loved the Mixed Berry Cheese cake and German Chocolate. The German Chocolate is a little too sweet.

    The 'Fresh Banana' cake is a combination of banana bread and cake; Moist, rich and delicious, albeit pricey. The red velvet cake is on the dry side; You can find better elsewhere (notably Chile Pies).

    Great desserts, friendly staff. Free Wi-Fi, but don't expect to find an open power outlet.

    Poppyseed cake and flan are both excellent. It's under new management as of June '11. Wendy, one of the new owners, is a sweetie!
